Depends on the wind situation .. I was going to stuff some RC into the car , but the weather does not look promising !

16 kmh winds , 80% Humidity , 40% chance of rain and a top temp of 13 deg C .. Will see .. Just depends on how things look in the afternoon .

Was planning on leaving home before 4pm and get there with maybe 30 minutes of light .. ( To play RC if the weather is nice )

ATM charging flashlight batteries , looks like I will be bringing 12 new flashlights ... 3 still in the post .. ( Oh well )
I flew my WL Toys 686 the other day , and there is also my JJRC H36 ( I think ) hmmm , maybe the XK 250 ?
Will see ..

Patchy morning fog in the outer suburbs. Becoming cloudy. Slight (30%) chance of showers during the morning increasing to a very high (90%) chance during the afternoon then decreasing to a high (70%) chance during the evening. Winds northerly 15 to 25 km/h shifting west to southwesterly in the late morning and early afternoon then becoming light in the late evening.

Depending on who you believe .. Prediction is for afternoon / evening showers ...
Starts to rain after lunch and continues to ???? 6pm or ?? later , supposedly the rain is to clear mid late evening ...

If you look at the long term weather prediction , next Fri it starts to rain again ?
And we had such lovely weather in the middle of the week ...

I don’t know where you guys are getting your weather from, but my forecast shows 20% chance of rain at 5pm then clear after that.

I’m still going to head down, will be bring a box of lights and knives for sale if anyone’s interested.

That's what I saw also, nice here at present, but I guess we're also north of the ranges. Ahh well, i'll chuck in an umbrella.

Always good to look at stuff for sale, just got to be able to sneek it in past the financial controller though......

Guys, I can only get there around 5pm-ish. Got a last minute job I have to complete first. Will keep checking the thread for updates in case the weather decides to take a dump....

Turn left onto Goldsworthy lane, off Memorial drive, go through gate. Dirt road and a bit gutted but ok. Keep following dirt. You will do a sharp rh. Keep going you come to gate and bitumen again. Follow bitumen. Turns to dirt again go through first car park you will see second carppark. A bit misty but it was clear over on the Hume. Hopefully will clear for us.
